Penalty Notice issued to Hera Resources Pty Limited (MP10_0191 as modified, Cobar Shire Council LGA)

On 18 June 2021, the Department issued a $15,000 Penalty Notice to Hera Resources Pty Limited for failure to carry out the Hera Gold Mine project generally in accordance with the Environmental Assessment and the conditions of consent. Hera carted raw water for operational mining purposes to the mine from offsite sources which was inconsistent with the consent and the Environment Assessment. Hera has scaled its operation to match its available onsite raw water supply and is considering other options, including the construction of additional bores and seeking modification of the consent, to ensure they have an adequate water supply for the project and comply with their legal obligations.
